The 22-year-old North Carolina-raised model – who has posed for the magazine for the past five years (last year, she wore nothing but body paint) – said she feels like "the New Orleans Saints did Sunday night."

Landing the coveted cover is "the equivalent of a model winning the MVP or the Super Bowl," she added. (Click here to see Decker and the other stunning SI swimsuit models.)

"I have no memory of that shot," said Decker, whose cover was first unveiled Monday on the Late Show With David Letterman. "For me, I didn't remember, and that is what's so nice about it — it's one of those natural, nice organic moments."
